Sewer backups: What are the common causes? How can SERVPRO Help?
Have you ever experienced a sewer backup? If not, you’re not missing out on anything. They can be extremely smelly and hazardous…but what causes a sewer backup?
Some of the most common causes of sewer line backups:
- Cities with merged sewage/storm water systems (when there’s heavy rainfall – can result in a backup)
- Blocked drain (from pouring viscous substances like oil & grease down your drain)
- Blockage in the main sewer line (from damaged pipes or soil settlement)
- Items that don’t flush well other than human waste
